Before I get to the video review section, I just want to emphasise the specs above again, as the LG V30+ has nearly everything you could dream in a phone. It also looks gorgeous. Below are a few first shots from the camera.

Camera Samples

The camera is a beast, so many options too. The photo that looks like it has had a filter applied was actually snapped with a filter pre applied. The camera shoots in 4:3 at max MP. All I have done is cropped afterwards to 16:9.
